The Seattle Aquarium is a wealth of undersea information for educators, kids, parents and visitors. Here's your chance to get face-to-fin with marine life. Through specialized teacher programs, field trip opportunities, events and other marine resources, everyone can learn to share the knowledge and encourage the protection of the Sound that surrounds us all.
